The pyro-matic is an enhanced Firemaking tool that can be researched in the Invention skill. Researching the ability to create this requires level 22 Invention. It contains 2 tool gizmo slots. Researching the ability to create pyro-matics also unlocks the ability to augment crystal tinderboxes using augmentors.
Pyro-matics gain item experience at a rate of 6.5% of the base experience of normal Firemaking actions performed while wielding it. Protean logs and Superheat Form give half the tool experience to pyro-matics compared to skilling with regular materials. This means that it takes approximately 617,231 Firemaking experience using regular materials to raise the pyro-matic to level 10.
While pyro-matics do not provide any inherent bonuses to Firemaking, tool gizmos can be added to them to gain the benefits of several useful perks:
- Pyromaniac - chance to burn all logs in the inventory at once
- Rapid - chance to burn logs faster
- Tinker - chance to increase base experience from burning a log by 25%
- Wise - provides +1% bonus experience per rank to all actions, up to 50,000 experience per day
The Pyro-matic uses charges stored in the universal charge pack. When the charge pack runs out of charges, the item loses stats and gizmo effects, and can also no longer gain any equipment experience. Function will resume when the pack is recharged with divine charges.
